BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE

MOBILIZATION ACT AMENDMENT BILL


On the orders of the day:


NAT

Richard Burpee Hanson (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Hon. R. B. HANSON (Leader of the Opposition):

I should like to ask the Prime Minister when he proposes to proceed with the second reading of Bill No. 80. I ask this question notwithstanding the fact that the 82,000,000,000 war appropriation resolution is still under discussion. According to the opinion I expressed here last week that discussion should have been well over by this time, but I am not attributing blame to anyone. I do think, however, that we ought to get on with this very important mobilization measure immediately.

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

May I say to my hon.

friend that it is entirely in the hands of the house as to how rapidly we shall get on with the different government orders. My hon. friend the leader of the opposition I think agreed with me that it was desirable to have the war appropriation measure disposed of in this house before taking up another measure.

Liberal

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I know, but I think in the long run the time of parliament will be saved by concluding at once the war appropriation measure rather than having the whole matter opened up again at a later stage. I share my hon. friend's desire to get on with the measure that he has referred to relating to the amendment of the National Resources Mobilization Act, and personally I would very much hope that this discussion on the present bill might conclude this week and that there would be opportunity to go on with the other measure on Monday or Tuesday next. But until to-morrow night I cannot say just when. However, I feel that we should conclude this present discussion as rapidly as possible.
